Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

Birthday card for my SIL, Mel

Mel is not only a great Sister In Law but she is also a great friend.  I just love her to death and she is such a joy to be around.  She has this kind of upbeat spirit about her that just lifts you up.
    I wanted to make her a special card so I broke out my favorite paper line, MME, "Union Square" stack.  I used the Tim Holtz Tattered flourals die to make all the distressed flowers and the black card stock is from Hobby Lobby, the ribbon is from CTMH, the punch is from Mcgill and the sentiment stamp is from Hot off the press.  I used inks from ranger in walnut stain and from Powder Puff chalk inks in marashino cherry.  That does it for this post. Thanks for stopping by to check out my card. Hugs, amy k
